How to Determine Liability After a Car Accident

The first priority in a car accident injury case is fairly determining liability—who is legally at fault for the accident and thus for potential damages. Liability is decided based on establishing negligence, and while it may seem as though one driver is fully responsible for the crash, liability isn’t necessarily an either/or. Multiple parties may be ruled to bear responsibility for an accident.

Liability may be spread between parties such as:

  • The drivers involved in the crash
  • Nearby drivers
  • Commercial freight or trucking company
  • Public transit company
  • Pedestrians
  • A bar owner who fails to report a drunk driver

While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it shows how many potentially liable parties there may be in a case. Therefore, it is essential in a car accident injury case to have a trained car accident lawyer in Aurora to investigate your crash and advocate for your needs.

How Long Does It Usually Take to Settle a Car Accident Lawsuit?

The length of your car accident lawsuit will depend largely on the complexity of your case. Additionally, the extent of damage and whether or not the liable party is fighting the claim can also influence the duration. Typically, the shortest amount of time a claim can be resolved in a few months. However, complex claims can take up to several years to reach a resolution.

Having an experienced personal injury attorney to guide you through legal process can help alleviate the burden and stress of filing a car accident lawsuit as well as assist in expediting your claim while you focus on recovering.

Damages You May Be Entitled to Receive for a Car Accident

Our car accident lawyers have helped clients from across Southwest Missouri get reimbursed for the expenses they incur after being hurt in a wreck. In law, this reimbursement is often called “damages”.

Damages include missed work, medical bills, loss of companionship, loss of home services and changes in lifestyle caused by injuries sustained in an accident. We also help the passengers involved in the car wreck get the compensation they deserve after being injured due to no fault of their own.
